"Each campaign corflute is equivalent to over 1,500 supermarket style plastic carry bags which are chocking landfills and creating environmental problems that will last for several hundred years", said Selwyn Johnston, a well-known proponent of bio-plastics.

"In addition to the enormous environmental problems associated with petro-chemical plastics, this Federal election is the third election this year that Queenslanders have been inundated with political posters causing visual pollution in their suburbs, streets and on school fences."

"The message I am getting from voters is that they have had a gutful of party political snake oil peddlers who have on one hand introduced a 'policy' which requires ordinary Australians to reduce their use of plastic bags, while demonstrating a blatant failure to comply with their own policy", said Selwyn Johnston.

The sheer hypocrisy of the alleged 'green' political parties is revealed by their lack of commitment to a real environmental issue, which is demonstrated by their duplicity in contributing to recognised environmental disasters caused by non-biodegradable plastics, concluded Selwyn Johnston.
